Margaret “Maggie” Nales Wilson (born March 15, 1989 in the Philippines but raised in Saudi Arabia) is a British-Filipino beauty pageant contestant, TV personality and actress from San Enrique, Negros Occidental. She was crowned Binibining Pilipinas-World at the 43rd Bb. Pilipinas beauty pageant held at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City on March 3, 2007. She represented the Philippines in the 57th Miss World pageant on December 1, 2007.[1] She was also an MTV VJ, the first Philippine beauty pageant titleholder to become one.[citation needed]

Personal life[edit]

Wilson was born to Sonia Nales from San Enrique, Negros Occidental and Robert James "Bob" Wilson from Glasgow, Scotland. She has a sister named Elizabeth who is 2 years younger. She studied in St. Scholastica's Academy in Bacolod City, Philippines, the Philippine International School and Al Hekma International School in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, and went into homeschooling when she entered showbusiness. Her interests include art, history and rock music. Wilson married real estate mogul Victor B. Consunji in December 2010 at Misibis Bay Resort and Casino, Albay.[2] They have a son named Connor.

Career[edit]

After her crowning as Bb. Pilipinas World 2007, one columnist allegedly questioned her qualifications for not being a high school graduate, which is one of the requirements for joining the pageant. A former Binibining Pilipinas-World titleholder and Miss World 1993 finalist, Ruffa Gutierrez, defended Wilson in a television interview, saying that the latter was chosen because she is tall, stunningly pretty and smart.[3]

She participated in the 57th Miss World pageant in Sanya, China in December 2007 but was unplaced.

As an actress, before entering into beauty pageants, she made her first appearance in Kakabakaba Adventures. She then played minor roles in GMA shows including Darna, Encantadia, Asian Treasures, Una Kang Naging Akin and Joaquin Bordado, until in 2009 she reprised the major role of Babaeng Linta in the 2009 Darna TV series, which starred Marian Rivera. Darna was Wilson's first time playing a major villain; she previously played a minor villain in the 2005 version of Darna, which starred Angel Locsin. Aside from acting, she also hosted Q-11's Fit & Fab, with fellow beauty pageant titleholder Anna Theresa Licaros in season one and fellow MTV VJ Kat Alano in season two.

She said she hopes to make her mark in the Asian modeling scene, before eventually trying her luck in Europe.[4]
